Christ king17

Theme: The end is the beginning

Today the 34th and last ordinary Sunday in the liturgical year the Church we celebrate the feast of Christ the King instituted by Pope Pius XI in 1925. This was meant to give a proper catechesis to the faithful on who is the true King of the universe. While Emperors and secular kings exist in history books; we still honor Christ as the King of the Universe, by enthroned in our hearts. Today the Church presents Jesus, whom we have contemplated preaching, teaching and healing us daily; so that we can truly celebrate him as Lord and God. During this feast we are called to a renewal our loyalty. On this we can borrow a leaf from St. Polycarp, the bishop of Smyrna.

Theme: Jesus is a king of my heart

Each year as we come to the end of our Liturgical Year, the Church invites us to celebrate this great feast of Christ the King at the end of our yearly cycle of feasts and festivals that have manifested different events in the life of Jesus, Mary, and the other Saints. We are reminded that Jesus Christ is Lord and King. This Feast was instituted by Pope Pius XI in 1925 to deter growing secularism and atheism of that generation. The Feast declares that Christ is king and thus sovereign over all persons, families, nations and the whole universe.

Dear Friends and Parishioners!

Let us all rejoice in the Lord, for our savior has been born in the world. Today true peace has come down to us from heaven.

Long ago there lived a wise and good king who loved his people. He wanted to know how they lived and wanted particularly to know about their hardships. Disguised and dressed in the clothes of a beggar, he used to visit the homes of the poor. No one whom he visited ever guessed he was their ruler.

The feast of manifestation, or Epiphany, is traditionally celebrated the 12th day after Christmas, January 6th. Here is a wonderful explanation of this beautiful feast.

DIRECTIONS

The Epiphany is the feast of the manifestation of the majesty and divinity of the newborn Savior. As early as the third century, the Eastern Church, in celebrating the birth of the Redeemer, viewed it primarily as the manifestation of God to man. Hence the name Epiphany, which means manifestation, was given to the feast. Toward the end of the fourth century, as the feast gradually came to be known and celebrated in the West, the adoration of the Christ-Child by the Magi or Wise Men was stressed. Soon these sages were looked upon as the Three Kings.
